ADM is a Professional Network, describe: "Why should anyone do business with you?"
“Using positive energy and pure ambition, I lead growth seeking automotive professionals toward daily victories – all while providing an unexpectedly pleasant and memorable experience for our customers.” Mike Correra Automotive Sales Manager
"What will YOU contribute to the ADM Community?"
People who know me describe me as ambitious, energetic and inspiring. My life is driven by passion for my wife and four children – the look and feel of muscle cars – the smell of the drag strip – pretty much anything 80’s – and being a student and a teacher in the car business.
I am a true motivator and have the natural talent to energize those around me. My passion and enthusiasm are intrinsic and delivered it with the sole purpose to inspire others. Most of the time, I am viewed as the “go to guy” and seen as an expert in many areas. I find myself highly respected for my well-rounded knowledge of the auto industry, but I am best known for being the guy who leads, empowers and develops his people.
Instinctively, I often raise the spirits of other people by putting aside what I’m doing and giving my team member my undivided attention. With an eye for raw talent, I use this natural born gift to differentiate people by focusing on their strengths.
With a desire to learn and understand the ever-changing automotive industry, I keep the book of knowledge open. I gather all kinds of innovative and cutting edge data, then keep it at my fingertips in order to ensure my organization stays competitive in the market place.
Although bold and direct when I speak, those around me know they can trust what I am saying. You can count on my sincerity while engaging with others. I believe it's important to make time to meet and connect with my team, and build a platform to cultivate mutual trust and respect – two values, of which, I will not compromise. During my daily mode of operation, I consistently leverage these values by walking the talk and delivering quantifiable results.
Keeping it real, you can expect me to entertain with quick wit and a great sense of humor. I believe laughter is the best therapy and in business I provide a car buying that is extraordinarily pleasant and positively memorable.

The ROI of Positivity :)

Posted on May 2, 2012 at 9:17am 1 Comment

Whats the ROI of a great attitude? How do you measure the ROI of a culture in which #positive is a constant and not an afterthought? When focused on spreadsheets and reports, where does an enthusiastic and encouraging enviroment fit it to the analysis?

My Internet 'Direct Sales' Team accepted my challenge to "30 Days of Positivity' at the begining of April. We constistantly worked with each other…

Hello Michael,

Welcome to the ADM Professional Community!
It is great to see you here... I am in my home office here in Gilbert, AZ trying to figure out how to get from Phoenix to Providence to San Antonio and back to Phoenix in 3 days... Anyways, despite the fact that I should be doing something else, like expense reports, I just had to go online to see if there were any new ADM Professional Community members that I should personally welcome... When I did... Shazam! There you were, one of several new(er) ADM Professionals that I consider very special and who I should welcome to our community.
(about time, huh?)

On behalf of both myself, and the rest of the 2,700+ member ADM Community, welcome to our online information exchange and file sharing repository... We are very happy that you have joined our community of automotive marketing, advertising and sales professionals.

IMPORTANT: Please send an email to mail@automotivedigitalmarketing.com and "right click" on the email address (in Outlook), then select "Add To Outlook Contacts" to save in your address book... Otherwise, messages from ADM will end up in your "Junk Mail" folder. If you look in your Junk Mail folder and find a message from ADM, Right Click on the message, select "Junk Mail" and then select "Add Sender's Domain to Safe Sender List" so that you will get your notifications, message alerts, invites, etc.


Please take a moment to share some more information about your current and previous professional roles. We would love to see more website links from you, and some blog postings with PPT, XLS, DOC and PDF files attached are particularly welcome. You can also upload or attach files and photos, or embed video clips into any ADM Forum posts you create, or respond to... We would all (well, most of us) love to see and listen to your music, automotive related photos and car business related videos. Because of our advertisers, I am able to pay for additional server storage capacity for ADM members to upload and have access to 1,000 GB (a Terabyte) of valuable content. So, any useful files you upload to take advantage of all this extra capacity, and share with your ADM professional colleagues is appreciated.

VERY IMPORTANT - All of us at ADM very much appreciate that you took the time to complete your profile section by uploading a photo showing your face. Most ADM members would like to put a face with your name and profile... Based on what i have seen since starting the ADM Professional Community at the beginning of 2008, I can promise you that you'll get more out of ADM when other members see that you have uploaded a profile photo!

I love seeing more and more automotive professionals and auto industry colleagues like yourself join the ADM Professional Community... When I checked the membership section a moment ago, I was pleasantly surprised to see that as of today, and thanks to your enrollment we are now up to over 2,700 automotive sales and marketing professionals who have joined the ADM Community... ADM was initially launched in early January 2008, and with help from automotive marketing professionals like yourself, we broke the 1,000 member mark on the 4th of July, 2008!

ADM members receive an amazing amount of support from an industry that has never ceased to amaze me, even after 28 years of selling cars... Makes the aggravation of flying around the country with guys sitting next to me who stick their elbows into my ribs, somehow worth it!

One of the greatest features that ADM provides is full un-moderated, unlimited access to your very own blog web site publishing tools within your personal profile section (here) of the ADM community. So feel free to get into the swing of things and use this website and the resources you get at no extra cost (because the ads here pay for them), as a means of sharing information, files, updates, proposals, photos, videos, etc.with your associates, customers, clients and friends!
